  1. Weird they're listed as Sub Pop and not dBpm? https://open.spotify.com/album/20d5m4EhOkMvp0xQgS7RiZ?si=Di9_YyJPSfWtOQ1JYOg1Bg&nd=1 UPDATED > More info on Bandcamp - https://jefftweedy.bandcamp.com/album/cmon-america?from=fanpub_fnb “C’mon America” is the A-side to Jeff Tweedy’s single, and is from an unreleased group of songs with mostly sci-fi lyrics. Meanwhile “UR-60 Unsent,” the B-side, is a pitiful tale of an unsent lovesick mixtape, taken from a separate batch of unreleased songs with mostly pitiful lyrics.
  2. Anyone heard any indication on an Irish date? They seem to be hitting Europe in summer for a few festivals at least, at least one is in the UK.
  3. Got 1 this morning in Tower Records Dublin. Guy working there said they had about 8 or 10 and nobody else in Ireland did. He also said there was some sort of mess up so no UK stores got it? Is that true? Either way he said we were lucky. Had a good few listens today and love it.Family Ghost is obviously great. Its different to Warm I think. Definitely in a similar vein but a little more low key maybe. Evergreen, Sick Server are two great ones that jump out. Also there are some very raw lyrics about his past and parents. In particular Orphan, seema to be about how Jeff is an orphan now hi

  5. First year of this festival and a scorcher of a day. Wilco got about 1hr 30mins, maybe a little more. Jeff said some nice things about Porto, not tons of chat though. All seemed in good spirits, Jeffs really rockin the fuzzy Neil Young look with the long hair and hat. Things like Spiders arrangement were so great! Once again just always impressed with how tight the band are. Bit if a chatty crowd but seems to e a trademark of the festival. We foud the same down the front for Rufus Wainwright, Yo La Tengo and The Walkmen. Why push down the front to chat? Jesus etc seemed to get added on a
  6. Ha! I wish. I won't even get to FF and I live about 100mtrs from IMMA in Kilmainham. I do work in Irish media though, in TV and film stuff, not newspapers or blogs. Yeah I'm still seething from the 1hr set at electric picnic a few yrs ago- that sucked. I will see them in Porto though!
  7. I really liked this. Are you Irish? If so I presume you know what the Ticket is and that it's aimed at the general public. The article is also aimed at shifting tickets for the festival. This ain't an interview in Mojo or Uncut. It's read by a certain sorta person who buys the Times and on a Friday they get this free supplement. It needs to cater to the masses and unfortunately the masses probably don't know who Jeff Tweedy is. So unless The Weekend magazine do an in depth piece, this is the best you'll get. If you're looking for a bad article try the one in Hot Press this fortnight th
  8. I think the Belfast statement is meant about an actual gig as opposed to the festival they did.
  9. entertainment.ie did a Nels interview - http://entertainment.ie/Music/feature/Wilco-::-An-interview-with-Nels-Cline---Part-1/1/2731.htm

  11. a few years ago at Electric Picnic they just had an hour - so an hour and fifteen is an improvement! Plus I think the festival is getting choked by their 10.45 curfew which they didn't go over last year. It should also be pointed out - since somebody mentioned getting from 1 stage to another - that this place is tiny so there's about 30secs to get from stage to stage.
  12. Stage times announced! Wilco 9.30 to 10.45 - kinda short! I'd def recommend anybody heading along to go in time to catch Field Music - great band!
  13. for Wilco or the festival in general? For Wilco i'd say 9 or a little earlier, the curfew is 11 and last yr they kept to it. Since it's a bank holiday there's no reason they wouldn't start early, just depends how many more bands they add. They might pad it out with some irish bands.
  14. Not much info but..... http://www.recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/5432
  15. Yeah it's official. Wilco, andrew bird and Field Music playing on the same day!!!!! I dunno if Field Music have broken anywhere outside of UK or Ireland but their new album "Plumb" is fantastic.
  16. http://www.irishtimes.com/blogs/ontherecord/2012/01/25/wilco-to-play-forbidden-fruit-festival/ This sucks as we'd bought our tickets to see them at Primavera the same weekend, now they're playing basically next door to my house (I live in Kilmainham). But its a cool festival all the same!
  17. There's a post about it on this Irish Times blog, in the comments the organiser of the Belfast festival posts to say it's the only Irish date.
  18. As far as I know these were limited "EARLY BIRD" tickets that were £25.
  19. It's also been added on the site that this will be Wilco's only Irish date.
  20. Wilco will play the Open House Festival in Belfast in September. Others due in town for the festival from September 7 to 12 include Old Crow Medicine Show, The Felice Brothers, The Low Anthem, AA Bondy and Dr. Dog. Limited early bird tickets for the Wilco and Felice Brothers show at the Festival Marquee (Custom House Square) on September 10 are now on sale at £25 each (normal price will be £32.50).
  21. Hi guys, Here's a new music video we just made, it's for Irish band The Ambience Affair. No video cameras were used in the production of this video. It was created entirely from over 15,000 still photographs on a Canon EOS 400D DSLR, shot on location in the Wicklow mountains, Ireland, February 2010. Directed by Souljacker The Ambience Affair - Devil in the Detail www.souljacker.ie www.myspace.com/souljackerfilms FACEBOOK Thanks, Sean
  22. "Wilco(the song)" was played in Starbucks on Dame St in Dublin yesterday.
  23. Was an awesome show ! Jeff was in great form, kept commenting after songs that each one related to an Irish artist, Impossible Germany to Thin Lizzy for example. There was some incident with somebody at the front, I think security took their camera off them, not sure but Jeff seemed to be talking to them or something. Overall it was great, I loved hearing Im Always In Love. Blitzen Trapper and Janet Weiss came out and played/sang along to California Stars. I think since it was a Friday night the curfew was 11.30 so we got a 2 and a half hr set. Seeing them tonight and last Sunday at Gr
  24. Hi, 2 standing tkts needed for tonights show ? sean@souljacker.ie
  25. Maybe he didn't want to constantly tour, just do it now and again. Although he was with Iron and wine on tour in 07 in Europe when they came back for a second run of shows he wasn't with them.
